Can anyone please tell me what breed or mix "Avairy" is? Thanks in advance.
The chicken in your avatar? He's an Easter Egger rooster.
if Avairy is the one in your profile picture, he looks like an EE (easter egger)
He is the one in the avitar I can't figure out how to add pictures directly to the thread. Easter egger means he is a mix right? Sorry new to this site chicken rearing as well. He was just so handsome I had to have him and he is big. Thanks
Easter egger means he has the genes for green or blue egg laying. Doesn't really matter for the roo, cause he isn't laying you any eggs! But if you wanted to breed birds that lay colored eggs, you could put him over some easter egger hens and have a pretty good chance of the female offspring laying green eggs.
He's an EE for sure.
An Easter Egger is basically the hatchery version of an Ameraucana. Avairy looks very Ameraucana-ish, except he has green legs, a true Ameraucana would have slate blue legs. But he does have a muff/beard, a pea comb, and classic Easter Egger rooster coloring. His daughters would very likely lay blue/green eggs.
